  • Richard Scott’s presentation is an awesome insight into the world of a successful professional artist! His rich history working in collaboration with the likes of the Desmond Tutu foundation, Vespa and other brands, and the vision he shares with his guests and collectors is truly worth the time. He is also a generous benefactor to many organisations teachings youngsters, helping raise funding for NPOs and simply providing guidance in art collection and curation - the experience is really inspiring stuff! - Andre Viljoen, owner of Woodstock Brewery

  •  Empowering. Honest. Impactful. Richard’s honest, open way of speaking captivates an audience immediately. He provides an impressive glimpse into a world unknown to most of us - the business of art. My crucial lesson from his talk: You can achieve anything. But working hard and with persistence towards your goals is not sufficient - you must also do it with an excellent understanding of business. Add the serendipity of friends to it, and the willingness to go out and establish collabrorations - and you will be unstoppable. - Axel Rittershaus, Entrepreneur & Business Advisor  

  • Richard’s openness and transparency was extremely refreshing. The personalised tour, and unfiltered insights into the business behind the art industry, made for a truly unique experience. Would highly recommend. - Anonymous Johannesburg Collector

  • Nearly 10 years have passed but we still love the Richard Scott artwork in 'collaboration' with our kids - all done in his own studio/workshop in Melkbosstrand.. They were young, but he got down to their level ,guided and encouraged them to produce something & then gave it his own inimitable style. I've been told he now does a corporate version and couldn't recommend high enough as something very unique and with the lasting memento, probably a little more mature than my kids :) - Tony Coleman, Entrepreneur in the Investment Sector
  • “Richard Scott was the guest speaker at our Venture Capital business Knife Capital with some of our investors and portfolio companies. What a refreshing talk about ’The Business of Art’ where Richard taught many lessons about understanding your unique selling point, monetising Intellectual Property and tweaking supply & demand economics. Brilliant!" - Keet van Zyl, Partnet at Knife Capital
